Head Stuffed Full of Useless Knowledge
I'm a bibliophile, reading mainly science fiction and fantasy books, with a fairly recent manga addiction as well. When I'm not writing or gaming, I'm probably reading (including picking up a book or toggling to another window to read every time I hit a loading screen).
Current gaming obsessions include LOTRO, DA:O, DA2, and Skyrim.
I sometimes attempt photography. And I may be a little obsessed with the Finnish heavy metal cello band, Apocalyptica.
There’s a lot of other stuff here, too (some of it which might also be of interest), but the relevant bit is:
The decision, I think, was made at the moment Loghain saw the beacon lit. He prepared for the possibility, as he prepared for everything, but I don’t think he decided to go through with it until right then.
And that makes perfect sense, especially for anyone who has read Stolen Throne and knows of the promise Maric extracted from him after the battle of West Hill, after Rowan and Loghain rescued him. It’s part of my headcanon that Loghain is no longer quite sane after Ostagar, after having the promise to Maric fulfilled with Cailan.
